I’ve had my first second life meets real life encounter. I must admit, it was kind of exciting and creepy when we discovered we worked in the same city and occasionally with the same institutions. I’ve heard far too many creepy encounters of virtual life meeting real life. My encounter was a good one though. He’s got some good contacts and is moving well on promoting the use of Second Life. His enthusiasm for the project is admirable. There’s some good potential for collaboration between the two of us and he got me thinking more about how I can implement and promote Second Life at my institution.
